Some more musical archeology/rehabilitation.

Lincoln - They Might Be Giants and it is just great. Purple Toupee, genius.

Heidi Berry's albums. A rare thing for me -  a songwriter who emerged in the 90s who is very good. (IMO).

It is an interesting challenge to find music that I can have on while I am working without it being too distracting. Today I have gone with

Be What You Are and Soul Folk In Action by The Staple Singers

Strawhead Sedgemoor and Johnny Clegg & Savuka Third World Child - I've been digitising some old LPs while we can't get out and about so much.  Still have a bunch which I've already recorded that need processing though.

My postman has just unexpectedly delivered a vinyl copy of The Story of Ian Prowse so I shall be listening to that shortly.

Unexpected because although I ordered it directly from Ian before lockdown I was anticipating receiving it yet.

Just heard the Eighteenth Day of May for the very first time.
What a great record.
Beautiful to look at too in green and gold vinyl.
I am surprised it has been under my radar all these years.
Thank you Col D and Davidmjs  for the recommendations.

Excellent!  Think it's sold out today (directly at least) as well...which kind of seems appropriate.

New Jason Isbell - Reunions . Superb. We may not be getting any live music but there have been at least 4 CD releases this year good enough for record of the year. Drive By Truckers, Steve Harley, Lucinda Williams and Jason Isbell. At least we've got time to listen to them!! (When I'm not being ordered to decorate).


Just listening to the Jason Isbell now - it is really good isn't it.

Best of the year so far.  Have you watched the video of Overseas on YouTube? I should have added Blackie and the Rodeo Kings to my list too.

Flying The Wrong Way - The Wooden Faces. Cassette. Yes the cassette has arrived at last. My first cassette for more than 30 years.

and

American Graffiti - Original Soundtrack. I watched the movie for the umpteenth time at the weekend but for some reason I have never previously purchased the soundtrack album. I have now put that right.

You going to play the cassette, or just listen to the download?

I have played the cassette. They are completely different recordings. The cassette is a totally analog recording and mix. The download is a totally digital recording and mix. The same performances were fed through two separate sets of recording equipment (tape & computer) simultaneously so there is a compare and contrast thing going on.

Fabulous movie and soundtrack. Odd that a film can make you nostalgic for an era that you never experienced in the first place, but it does. I don't have that soundtrack album either, but I do have the More American Graffiti one. I've not seen the sequel film, though.

That sounds intriguing...I'll check them out.
